Beauty Haul: Mac, Revlon and Maybelline

 Hey Everyone,

So I have a small beauty haul even though I have been trying to not spend money. It is just waay to difficult with all of the sales that have been going on. Anyways, I headed over to mac and purchased the coveted satin taupe. I figured it was about time considering all the hype that surrounds this particular shade.  (swatch down below)

While I was there I also picked up Brick-Ola which comes in the creme amplified formula so it goes on opaque right away. Although, I really do love the shade it wouldn't be a favorite mine as I find it to be a bit to warming with my skin tone.

I shamelessly also picked up two other lipsticks. Shoppers Drug Mart was recently having a sale on lip butters so I picked up the shades Candy Apple and Raspberry Pie. I love this particular formula and have used all the other ones I own to their very end.  Raspberry Pie is a bright pink fuchsia which will be great for the spring and Candy Apple is a more of an orange toned red with no shimmer. For those wondering, the Revlon lip butter in Cherry Tart is more blue tones and has shimmer.

The last think I got is two new glitter polishes from Maybelline in Gold's Night Out and Ruby Rhinestones. In all honesty I haven't been to impressed with the Maybelline color show formula. I have found the formula for the ones I have tried to be very thin and sheer. However, I couldn't help it and had to pick up the these two beauties. I do think they are good considering there price point ($2.97) and the formula for these is pretty good compared to the other I have tried, though they could be a bit more glossier.

That is all for my little haul. Hope you all have a great week up ahead and I will do my best to post more often.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Ruby Rhinestones looks gorgeous, I wish glitter polishes came out a lot thicker though.
